    Re: "ded" versus "dead" reckoning
    From: Fred Hebard

    It tells us that the first reference to "ded" reckoning was in the
    1930s while it was always "dead" reckoning before then.
    
    The differentiation between dead reckoning and an estimated position,
    accounting for set and leeway, might be of use in teaching navigation.
